Hi Kirk!
Please correct me Sir. Can we say 'Rob explains question forms and expressions people use when they go ( go on, go to) shopping' ?. My suggestions are in the square brackets. Thank you.

Hello Akbar Safi,

Actually, just 'go shopping' is the best form here! 'go' is followed by lots of verbs in the -ing form (e.g. 'go swimming', 'go running', 'go shopping', etc.) and no preposition is used in these cases, unless you wanted to specify the place: e.g. 'go shopping at Camden Market', 'go shopping in London'.

All the best,

Where is the transcript? Please show me. I really need it. Thanks you

Hello lyly,

The Language Focus pages do not currently have transcripts. One day we plan to add them, but if you want to ask us a question about a short segment in the meantime, please feel free to do so. All we ask is that you provide the time code (e.g. 1.35–1.40) for the segment you'd like help with.

All the best,

Hello every one

Thank you very much! <3

hello every one,
I'm lucas from brazil and i am loving learn english in this course,
thanks a lot

I have some kind of trouble to put the answer in the right question. How I can put it ? I tried to drag it, but it didn't work. I am sorry for my stupid. :)

Hello Eka Hutagalung,

It's not a stupid question at all! We've recently changed the format of the tasks so that instead of the usual drag-and-drop method you now need to click once on the item and then once on the space. Try this and it should work.


Best wishes,
